Silver Screen Sirens - The Inventor brooch
Silver Screen Sirens - The Inventor brooch.
I called this image of Hedy Lamarr 'The Inventor' because at the beginning of World War II, Lamarr and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, which used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers. Although the US Navy did not adopt the technology until the 1960s, the principles of their work are now incorporated into modern Wi-Fi, CDMA, and Bluetooth technology, and this work led to their induction into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.
Hedy Lamarr; born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, 9 November 1914 – 19 January 2000 was an Austrian and American film actress and inventor.
This image is affixed to a silver tone brooch setting measuring 40mmx50mm across the widest points with glass covering the image.
Inside diameter = 30mmx40mm
Outside diameter = 40mmx50mm
My products are meticulously handmade one piece at a time. Due to this process, there may be a slight variation from one item to the next. Such variations are inherent in the manufacturing of handmade products, so you may expect minor distinctions/imperfections that will make your purchase special and truly one of a kind.
